Hey,

I've only recently installed a Gainward GeForce FX5200 into my PC. I had a couple of problems with it as well but that was because the drivers for my last card weren't uninstalled properly. If you still have your original card try putting that back in and see what happens. If it works straight away then you'll know the drivers weren't uninstalled properly.

What you need to do is make sure that you've uninstalled the drivers for the previous card. Make sure you remove this card from the device manager as well. When you've made sure that all of the drivers are gone off the system put the new card back in and boot up the computer. When you get to windows you should get the "Found New Hardware" wizard. Follow the wizard, insert the driver CD for the FX5200 and let the wizard find the driver on the CD. Restart the computer and hopefully it should be working.

Let me know if this works. If it doesn't work let me know and I'll try find another solution for you.

Let me know how you get on!

I had the same problem upgrading the drivers for my FX56000 card.  Here is the solution that worked for me.  The problem is that the permission aren't set right in the registry so you and the system are being denied permission to update the driver.  Here is how to fix it.

Do Start>>>Run and type in regedit.

Once regedit is open search for this key

HKEY_Local_machine/software/Nvidia Corporation

You should see it in the left hand pane.  Once you find it, then right click on it.  A menu will open and once of the menu items will be "Permissions"  choose that item.  The permissions box will now open.  Select your admin level user account that you are installing the driver from and place a check mark in the box next to "Full Control".  Now select the "System" account and do the same thing for it.  Exit regedit and you will now be able to install the drivers without getting the error message about the parameter being wrong.

I also experienced this problem and this worked - setting permissions was definately the problem thanks!

You can also get to the "permissions" via edit menu.
